Max a Mia is our family favorite! We go whenever we are in that part of the state. The food is truly outstanding and the service is excellent. The staff goes above and beyond to make dining pleasurable.

Lovin Max in Avon!
Went last minute on a Thursday night with 12 in our party. Hostess and servers were so accommodating. Place across the street said they couldn't fit us but they had TONS of empty tables. They SO lost out. We so love you Max in Avon!

Very happy birthday celebration!
We had a very nice time, food was wonderful...as always. We were celebrating my daughter's 20th birthday and I had requested a desert for her which was a very nice surprise for her. They sang happy birthday and said the desert was "on the house." Very nice touch to a very nice time.

Max a Mia is one of our most favorite local restaurants. My husband loves the pasta dishes and I am very glad for the wonderful gluten free menu options. We'll keep coming back--often!

Another great Max
Everything you expect from a Max restaurant. Especially good for lunch for a broad selection from light to not so light. The eggplant Parmesan is delicious and every salad is good. Wine list is ok but could be better.

Better and Better
Restaurant was in a slump for awhile but it's now even better than when it opened.

Still one of our favorites. Menu seems to be more streamlined , with fewer choices. Liked the old menu more, but the food is still excellent.

Since Max a Mia changed its menu, there are more choices for us. The only downside of Max a Mia for my husband and me is the loud noise level.

Max Restaurants Found the Secret
And Max a Mia is no exception! This is my favorite of all the Max Restaurants - the only problem I have is deciding what to order! Luckily, this time I went with four other people so we ate our apps family style and sampled each others' entrees. Not surprisingly, everything was delicious!

The waitress we had was outstanding. She had a great deal of patience and got every order correct. The food arrived done to perfection. Everyone in the group had only positive comments about the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others.

This past Friday's dining
This past Friday's dining experience made up for a previous so-so visit on 4/26. Max-a-Mia is our go-to place to dine with a couple from Simsbury, who we see 3 times a year. I'll be back.

Girl's Night Out
Wonderful dining experience with a friend who is a guest of Max a Mia often. She knows the menu well,so I took her lead on the Petite (6 oz) Filet Mignon. WONDERFUL. Tender, juicy, perfect medium rare....with grilled asparagus, a special request of my friend. The chopped salad (another wonderful tasty creation with blue cheese) we shared. It was a busy bustling evening and the service was fast, efficient, and accommodating.

Went there for a birthday
Went there for a birthday dinner with my wife,found it to be superb overall.
Food was great as well as the service.The only negative was the COFFEE it was not very good.
Overall,I will certainly be back with friends.

Luncheon With a Friend
The wait staff were very attentive, the food choices were great. The flowers outdoors along the patio were very nice view and walk along. We did not feel rushed. The only thing that the waitress could have done was to let my friend know that the panni came with fries, which she would have liked to have substituted for something else. Also she was surprised that the panni bread did not come in a wheat version. Otherwise a enjoyable luncheon and a reasonable price.

Start to finish we had a wonderful food and ambiance experience .

Best anniversary dinner
We had our anniversary dinner and everything was perfect. Such delicious, creative combos! I had the salmon and my hubby had the duck. We also shared a salad and cheesecake. Everything was yummy and left a great taste in my mouth. We would definitely go back. Oh and the service was excellent too, so friendly and pleasant and great at answering questions about food!

Friendly and energetic but
Friendly and energetic but relaxed atmosphere. Never had a bad dish here. Fresh house-made pastas are our favorites. Stone pies good for sharing. Fish and veal dishes are excellent. Weekend brunch great way to start a Saturday or Sunday. Take out orders were a surprise and delight. All the pre dinner roasted garlic and tomato sauce with bread are packed in the order.

Wait staff fabulous
Wait staff was fabulous. Claire answered all of our questions on the food with lots of knowledge. Food selections were interesting and well all loved our meals.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we ordered was delicious! Our server was extremely pleasant but service was quite slow. Also the music was way too loud. We could barely hear each other to hold a conversation. We were there for 2.5 hours! In spite of the length of time we were there, I would go back.

dining room v. bar booth
we did the latter and it was a little noisier than I'd have liked. The service was a little slower as well, but the food more than made up for it.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a lovely early dinner at Max a Mia. Pasta with Lobster special was good, could ave had more lobster, though. Salmon with quinoa was terrific, done perfectly. Our server was very attentive and friendly, also reminded my husband to use our or Max card.

Max a Mia is our " don't feel like making dinner but want a good meal" place.
We can always depend on well prepared food and good service,
Without drama or dealing with snooty maitres'de and attempts to be something a restaurant is not.
Max a Mia is a solid restaurant with well trained staff, interesting food that's
well prepared, pleasant atmosphere, without pretensions.

Great for guests
This is a restaurant that is great when you have out of town guests and want an enjoyable evening in a local restaurant. The food and service are always tasty and reliable.

Consistently Top Notch
I'm always pleased with the level of service and food at Max's. Their Caeser Salad with grilled shrimp is especially delicious. Homemade dressing, lots of cheese, crispy romaine lettuce. Meatballs taste like the ones grandma used to make. My guest had another of Max's yummy salads. The restuarant is clean, wine glasses sparkle, and the linens are perfectly folded .
It's always a treat to go to Max's!

Always a Good Experience
We went for the Taste of Suburbia, menu was more than adequate, food was delicious.

All MAX restaurants are cozy, well decorated and hip places to be. The closet to being in Manhattan NY.
Food was good and great wine selection
Staff are friendly and service is fast.
The whole dining experience was great except for the finale... the dessert! We were a table of 6 and tried the west of the river menu. The execution of the peach shortcake was a big disappointment. Dry cake, as if it was 2 days old, very few peaches in between, no sauce or cream a very poorly presented.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
We come here once a month or so.
This time was a business dinner, and Max's never fails to deliver.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had reservations for a group of 7 and were sat immediately by the very friendly hostess. The food was terrific, well prepared, hot and presented beautifully. The portions were perfect. Our waitress Emily was extremely nice and knowledgeable and did a great job throughout the meal. Will be back again!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Max doesn't disappoint
Consistently good food. Italian themed but really closer to excellent cooking without regard to ethnic origin. Everyone was happy with his food. The teetotaler a would have preferred a better nonalcoholic beer than Buckler's but that was the only complaint. I had calamari and risotto with scallops and both were excellent. The latter was a standout. We will be back.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a large group and everybody raved about their meal. My husband and I eat here regularly but were entertaining out of town guests from New York City on this visit. They were very impressed with the food and service.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Local Resturant
Max a Mia is a great local restaurant with terrific food and service. We eat here at least once a month and have always had great food and service. The Pasta Bolonese is amazing

Superb service and great food
All you'd want.
Food the best
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is good, but not as great as it used to be. I ordered the special, a swordfish, which would have benefitted from some acid to brighten it up a bit. Ditto the fennel salad. The food was somewhat bland.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service, excellent food
The restaurant has a very cozy atmosphere. The food was very well cooked and flavorful. We had a great little corner booth which worked out perfectly. The service was awesome, very attentive. Definitely a place to go back to!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the special treatment we received from the waitstaff when my husband and I had dinner. Couldn't ask for a better place to dine. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

we have eaten at a lot of Italian Restaurants over the years and I have become a MEATBALL LOVER - the 5 of us had a app of family style MEATBALLS - I need to tell you there where the best I have had. Mussels where just OK - Not much flavor - We like our mussels in a nice red sauce - Overall just a great experience and we would go back soon - We like all of the Max's restaurants.
Must also say service was outstanding.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Max-a-Mia is consistently a great restaurant. We dine here once a month.

I am never disappointed when I visit any of the Max Group restaurants. The food and the service are always outstanding.

Always a Solid Choice
Max a Mia is one of our regular favorites. The food and drink quality is always top notch, as is the ambiance.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
As expected dinner was AMAZING. Food is just out of this world starting off with the roasted garlic and calamari. My only dislike is that it is very loud in the main dining area so don't expect a quiet romantic evening.
